E wind here so it had to be Bassenthwaite Lake.
Usual OK gusty lake session but definitely winter! Air 6°C and water also back to winter temperatures. Light white dusting to the fell tops.
Had to stop a couple of times to let the snowball hands pain subside… was it really just 2 weeks ago I had my last summer steamer sail on the sea.

Worth the trip but I’m not a fan of winter fresh water. It’s cold and it tastes funny.
